I have an online I use and is very large and send  alot of information by email.

When some one make a mistake or needs to change a certain part of the form and would like to clear the form of everything exceept certain parts of the form, like Name, address and so on.

Is there a way that if I place a clear bottom that it would only clear certain areas?

I guess I am not really folllowing you on this.

Will this only clear certain areas of the form? So they can be re-entered.

Please explain

Yes. Dont try to analyze the example yet. First run it. (copy & paste into notepad, save as C:\temp\formtest.htm, then open it in your browser by typing c:\temp\formtest.htm in the address bar)

It will clear the field named "I1", but you can use the function to clear ANY field using the syntax I've given
